i love this
This is an awesome scanned pdf. The fact that it was printed BEFORE the praised 1611 KJV bible, is something that in and of itself is very interesting to me. With the KJV having all the same books as this one, AND lacking several in the Old Testament, is very telling.
As for the person below me who left a review complaining about the OCR translation.... In case you are unaware, OCR is an acronym for Optical Character Recognition or Optical Character Reader, which, in this case, is a computer program that converts images of text, whether it be typed, handwritten or printed text, into encoded-text format. This Geneva Bible, being that it is written in Gothic type font, when put through the OCR tool, is much like putting an image of paisleys and doodles into the OCR; it wont recognize many of the words as correctly as it it would roman type font, if at all. I would be thankful to whoever took the time to sit down and scan each and every page of this book, saved it in PDf format, and uploaded it here free for anyone to read AND download. To complain about something a computer program did is childish, unnecessary and frankly rude to the person who created this pdf. Comments like these are the ones your mom was talking about when she would tell you "keep your comments to yourself."
This is a dump of the results of a poor OCR, with no proofreading whatsoever.
If you are expecting something readable, even as moderately readable as the original, look elsewhere.

Correction needed: this is not the King James Version of the Bible which only appeared in 1611, but the so-called Geneva Bible. This printing of 1606 is somewhat unusual in that it was set in gothic type, whereas most Geneva Bibles used Roman type.
